For the July PMC event we host a a panel of execs from the Seattle product world, and they will be sharing the lessons they have learned throughout their careers.

If your role includes product strategy, or inbound product management (aka ‘What to build?’) then I maintain that 1:1 customer interviews are the most important tool in your box. They are also one of the most underused. I will be exploring this topic more over the next few months but for now here are some quick tips I have found useful along the way.…
